Kildare golfer Nollaig Heavey hits the jackpot

Nollaig Heavey with his new Toyota Rav4

Golf fans throughout the land will remember and recall last week's feat by Tiger Woods as one of the great days of golf as the he picked up his fifth Green Jacket in Augusta.
However, another keen golfer will recall last Friday for many a day to come.
Nollaig Heavey, a member of Palmerstown Estate Golf Club was playing in a “5 for the Fight” a Cancer Charity Day in Luttrellstown Castle.
The Raheens man, who hails from Clongorey, played the 13th hit the perfect six iron on the 166 yard par 3, his ball landing on the green, one hop and into the hole.

And for his prize ... a spanking new Toyota Rav4, worth some €40,000.
So while Tiger celebrates his big win in Augusta, no doubt Nollaig Heavey will recall, and celebrate, last wee's brilliant ace at Luttrellstown Castle.

Congratulations.
